I had an engaging and lively conversation with Holly Copeland, senior director of Corporate Social Responsibility at Horizon Therapeutics.

Many organizations believe in giving back to the community, but Horizon started their Corporate Social Responsibility program when the company was not yet profitable.  That’s how important they felt it was to thrive within their community ecosystem.

 We discussed:

  • Using Corporate Social Responsibility outcomes in conjunction with the goals of the company
  • The creative lens to create a “buffet” of opportunities to get employees involved
  • The correlation between CSR and employee engagement and positive company culture
  • The importance of employees feeling part of something bigger, beyond their job description
  • CSR as a way to promote pride in the organization
  • What an organization, no matter how small, can do right now to make a small step toward their own corporate social responsibility

 Listen in to hear what YOU can do right now to create the ripple effect in your own community.
